ScareFest: with guests
Frank Polievka and Jonathan Ness of Adventure Myths;
movie actor Courtney Gains; ScareFest owner Patti Starr
Tonight's show was broadcast live from
in Kentucky; various Para-X hosts were in attendence, as well as both real and self-declared
celebrities within the paranormal community.
As early as Friday, the video feed was viewable with chat within the
and at the
At 4:50pm my time, I got called in, and Henry was already speaking with
which make paranormal documentaries.
They've investigated in various places around the world, particularly a few places in Ireland, with some interesting things in the
Caves of Kesh.
They create documentaries, then allow the places to resell copies for their own profits, towards location maintanence and restorations, etc.
Their DVDs are available on Amazon
(links are below),
and clips are viewable on
Frank indicated having a good
he showed Henry which Henry found quite impressive, though I could not locate that specific shot myself.
In Doylestown Pennsylvania they found "singing rocks," similar to cave stalactites and stalagmites that chime when struck.
Meanwhile, Craig's mic was giving him some signicant problems, and his back-up mic was just as uncooperative.
Henry informed Frank about my doing these show-reports, and that he might hear me typing.
I pointed out such Wasn't The Case
the previous week,
and Henry relayed the strange activity that took place during our interview with
They'll be at the famous
on October 8th, and probably doing a documentary while there.
October 29th they'll be attending a
Hauntings Paranormal Dinner and Investigation
in Winchester Virginia.
He talked about
and other urban legends they've investigated.
They use video cameras and have learned to Keep Rolling, having learned from experience that almost the moment an investigator turns off a camera, the Activity kicks in, often big time.
They've worked with the FLIR camera via another group, understandably covetous of the highly expensive camera.
He spoke about the impressive
and that they got a clear EVP in the chapel
(at Craigs's inquiry).
An hour and four minutes into the show, Henry revealed he'd just noticed he had
forgotten to start recording
So the now about 0:52 minute podcast will be a little... "short" this week...
Henry's next guest was film actor
who played Malachi in
Children of the Corn.
His mother lives in a house on a hill in Los Angeles, having had a strange experience.
A woman came to her door asking after a certain woman, and later the mom's neighbour on hearing this indicated the woman being sought was her late grandmother...
Henry's third guest was
also of Adventure Myths,
talking about the Iron Island EVPs they caught.
Jonathan and Frank both understandably would love to investigate the White House ghosts.
With the event closing down as the show was winding down as well, and the guests were starting their exodus for the evening.
Our final guest was
who owns and created ScareFest, her husband Jeff having suggested the event.
It'd run another day from 11am-4pm.
They have 2012 secure for next year's event; 2013 will be the second weekend of September.
They were all set to go to the VIP event.
She indicated there are two websites for the event:
what with their being one of those "Haunted House" attractions sharing the same name, and a similar domain name.
Henry realized he didn't have the info on the next week's guest, which, as I had it handy, I conveyed as being
author of Cincinnati Ghosts: And Other Tri-State Haunts.
As the show concluded, I had Henry sit for a frame-grab for this page; Henry neglected to put his headset back on and as he started to close down stuff, Henry left open Skype, busy enough he understandably "forgot" about my still being connected; soon the streaming video unceremoniously went black, and after several minutes of listening to his putting away equipment, I simply signed off to polish up the report and await the truncated podcast to be uploaded online...
